This book is so amazing! It literally sucks you in, (no pun intended) and spits you out at the last page, but leaves you hungry for more!

Twilight is one of my favourite books and I have got to say that it is a must-read. If your looking for romance and action, this is the book for you. All the characters a really well described and so is the scene that is happening. When you read this book, you will fall in love and stay up all night reading it.

Ok so, I'd heard way back when these books were so popular that they were great, but that the movies they'd made about them were awful. I recently realized I had both Twilight and New Moon in my own bookshelf. So I read them both. I'm way past teen/tween, but I thought they were both so good. Recently they've been showing Twilight, New Moon & Eclipse on tv, so took a chance. Was i ever disappointed!!! The "actor" they chose for Bella was WRONG!!! Kristen Stewart, really? She can't act, at least not in this. Victoria, the red-headed vampire was beautiful AND had a personality. Dakota Fanning would have been a better choice than Stewart. And what's with that breathing thing she does constantly? She was on my last nerve by the time 3 mins had passed. I'll absolutely read Eclipse & Breaking Dawn.But I will not watch either in "movie" form. I look forward to both. But whoever cast Stewart in the lead role, made 1 huge mistake. Just sayin..

Bored one day I picked up this book in our school library and began to read it. I was surprised at how easily I fell into the charm of this novel, quickly reading the second and third books also. My advice is to not read the book with lenses tainted with what everyone else thinks about this book, read it with an open mind and the realization that it is okay to like something that may not have a necessary deeper meaning or philosophy. You'll find it's actually a nice read!

i guess teens like this book because it's about a smothering, obsessive love between a namby-pamby girl with no personality and some pretty-boy vampire who has even less of a personality than the girl.

I know how most everyone thinks this is so ridiculous! The paranormal romance and all, but I would recommend you read it for yourself. I can assure you it was better than the movies! I personally loved it and read the series in a week, I know plenty who hate it and one who thought it was scary! So it's all up to you, do read it though! It really was quiet fabulous!

This is one of the books that most people either love or hate. I think I'm somewhere inbetween. I can see that Bella is not exactly the smartest girl ever, but the idea of the book is interesting, and the author does a great job of keeping Bella's personality consistent. Many books will have female characters who are clueless about something one second, and a super talented at it the next. I like how Bella's personality and intelligence don't go for a rollercoaster ride every chapter as if she has AMPD (Accidental Multiple Personality Disorder)

About three things I was absolutely positive. First, Edward was a vampire. Second, there was part of him — and I didn’t know how potent that part might be — that thirsted for my blood. And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.
